The International Organization for Targum Study (IOTS) will hold its fourth congress on 29-30 July 2004 in Leiden, The Netherlands. A call for papers will appear in the next issue of the Newsletter.

The Targum Edition Exploratory Committee (TEEC), which is developing a long-term plan for creating scholarly editions of all the Aramaic targumim, has been working for the past two years to finalize a draft proposal. The proposal should be finished this summer and will then be available to all interested parties via the Newsletter website. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Alberdina Houtman (, the committee’s chair.

The IOTS sponsors an e-mail discussion list for the study of the targumim called Targum-L. Anyone wishing to subscribe should send their email address to “listmaster” Paul Flesher at:
